Councillor Jason Baker - Portfolio Holder for Chard Regeneration

"I'm proud to be the Portfolio Holder for the Chard Regeneration scheme and to see this programme come to life. 

From concept to build, we have listened to what residents have told us they would like and I am personally delighted to be able to offer the community facilities that have been asked for, consulted on and now implemented.

We want Chard to be a great town where people want to visit, businesses will flourish and everyone has an enjoyable experience when they visit this unique town.

The High Street Heritage Action Zone work in the town centre alongside the facilities being provided at the Boden Mill site will ensure that residents and visitors will do just this and as a District Council, we are very pleased to be investing in this town and are excited for the future of Chard."
